Abstract:

A field study of exhaust cloud diffusion from solid rocket motors was conducted at the Air Force Rocket Propulsion Laboratory. The objective of the program was to correlate the diffusion of rocket motor exhaust clouds with measurable meteorological variables under both stable and unstable atmospheric conditions. Fifty-seven sets of field data were collected from 250 to 350 air samplers per test using solid rocket motors ranging from 100 to 4000 pounds of propellant containing beryllium. The work is presented in three volumes. Volume I describes the diffusion experiment, the chemical analysis program, the bioenvironmental safety program, and discusses the data analysis and the resulting diffusion equations from hot instantaneous sources.
